The serious road injury rate could be halved if more people clicked into their seat belt before they took to the highway. Make sure that your belt is going to protect you in an accident by adjusting it for a correct fit. You can do this by pulling the portion of webbing from the buckle to your shoulder away from your body and then letting go. This will eliminate any slack in the belt. Sit with your shoulders and hips firmly positioned against the back of the seat to prevent your body from slipping below the restraint in the event of an accident.
Make It Click, Make It Stick
Always fasten your seat belt, making sure that it correctly adjusted.
